thanks for supporting an independent business!
We hold stock of hardbacks and paperbacks in Switzerland and in the UK. We also ship internationally, though our shipping times can be a bit slow (Grandma insists on delivering them on Gordon the Horse). Luckily, you can also order paperbacks and electronic copies from Amazon. Direct links are available on the individual product pages (or just search Amazon by Annahita de la Mare - pretty sure I'm the only Annahita de la Mare in the whole wide world).
Customers in Switzerland can also buy the Hot Air Balloon Adventure stories in Orell Füssli in Zürich, Bücher Balmer in Zug, Kinderbuchladen in Zürich, Kafi Satz in Wädenswil, Creative You in Thalwil, the Storycraft studio in Rüschlikon and Academicus in Zürich. Customers in the UK can also order through Waterstones.
*Free shipping on orders over 30 CHF. Discount applied automatically at check-out. UK customers benefit from free shipping on all orders.
Buying two hardbacks or three paperbacks? Lucky you! You get free shipping!
Why are paperbacks more expensive to buy direct than from Amazon? Well, books purchased on this website are printed on thicker silk paper in the United Kingdom and imported into Switzerland for distribution across Europe (we do also keep some stock in the UK!).
But we know many people prefer to buy books at high street prices, so we also make our books available through Amazon's print on demand service. These books are printed on slightly thinner paper and are printed in Poland, the United States or Canada.
